As of 2017, over 47 million tons of e-waste were generated and the numbers are rising annually by 4%. Unfortunately, only 20% of e-waste is subject to recycling and 80% are dumped in landfills or burned, knowing that e-waste accounts for nearly 70% of toxic waste.

Telecom companies are always upgrading their network components and servers and for that sake, Alfa has decided to package all retired equipment and ship them to Sweden for recycling. The 35 containers that will be shipped will amount to over 460 tons of e-waste.
